9 Moments To Live For, No Matter How Dark Life Gets

Whether you want to admit it or not, life can sometimes can really dark. You have days where you wonder if anything will ever get better or if it is even worth trying anymore. I hope you can remind yourself that it is.

If you can't, here are some moments worth living for.

The day you meet your maid-of-honor/best man

There's nothing quite like meeting your partner in crime, your other half — the person who gets you more than anybody else does. They become one of the most influential people in your life, and with them by your side, you feel as though you can get through anything.

Traveling to a place that takes your breath away

Maybe it is standing in front of the Eiffel Tower or looking out from the top of the mountains in Colorado. Life is full of so many beautiful sights, and there are so many you've yet to see.

These moments really make you feel as if the world is so much bigger than you and your problems.

The times you laugh so hard your stomach hurts

Whoever said that "laughter is the best medicine" wasn't messing around. Absorb these times.

Truly, nothing feels the same as this.

The holidays

You never want to miss out on the holidays, especially when it comes to the warm feeling you get seeing fully decorated houses and sparkling Christmas lights.

During this time, everyone is a little kinder, everything tastes a little sweeter and everything feels a little more magical.

Eating crazy good food

You know that feeling when you were really craving a specific kind of food, and now you're about to eat it? Ohhh baby..

Watching a movie or reading a book that makes you cry

This sounds sad, but you know a movie or book is exceptionally good when it makes you cry. And experiencing things that touch your heart is a monumental part of life.

Meeting your future spouse

Do I even need to say more?

Doing something that scares you

This is the best feeling ever, though the joy usually comes afterward. It's always incredibly rewarding to do something you're afraid of, and it always brings the best memories with it.

Getting over something you never thought you would

This is another rewarding feeling. I know the process of it sucks, but getting yourself through something you never thought you would gives you so much pride and dignity. You completely change afterward.

Whether you have or have not experienced these things yet, they are all incredible moments to live for. Life is full of monumental and sweet moments you don't want to miss out on. When life sucks, remember that.

I'm so proud of Demi Lovato's new, powerful breakup ballad, "Still Have Me." After her split from fiancé Max Ehrich, she is pulling herself out from the darkness, picking up the shattered pieces, and realizing that she's got this. If that's not inspirational, I don't know what is.

Trader Joe's has been my favorite grocery store since I knew it existed — from the small, community-like feel to the prepped frozen snacks I throw in the oven 10 minutes before having guests over, it's been a go-to for me for over a decade.

During the four years in college I didn't live near one, friends and I would make a semi-annual pilgrimage to the one nearest us hours away to pick up our favorite essentials, all on a college budget.

It's important to recognize that we all go through different experiences based on the reproductive systems we're born with. Yes, the penis and vagina do different things. I want to understand what it's like to walk around with a pair of balls and I'd hope others are curious about what it's like to bleed once a month, endure infertility issues, and just have a uterus and identify as a woman.

I'm not going to lie — I was pleasantly surprised by the answers I received when I asked 12 men about some basic reproductive health. Here's what they had to say.

Many people want to help when they learn someone they know is going through or has been through, a rough period in life. The issue lies in the right way to approach the situation without making it worse. These encounters, whether they be continuous or a single conversation, are never easy. It's okay to feel discomfort and to question whether or not you're handling it properly.

There are a few things I've found to be mostly universal in theory (if not in full thought) from the person going through a tough time. I hope this brings some understanding and perspective for the next time you have a sit down with someone you care for.

PCOS Is The Worst, But The Women Battling It Every Day Are Extraordinary

Women are learning new ways to assist hormonal health every single day.

Everyone knows someone who has polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Maybe you don't know that you know, but with 10% of women in the United States having the autoimmune disease, it's more common than you'd think. The hormonal hell that many of these women go through is not only painful, but it's exhausting, with too few answers thanks to a lack of research and consistency.

This lack of research makes the disease rather "trial and error" for many women, as everyone's case is different and requires them to figure things out based on experimentation. Thankfully, the women of the world are good at fixing problems. While PCOS has caused me a lot of hurt, I've been blown away by the women I've met who continue to tackle this battle head-on, one day at a time.

OK, listen, I also think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is cool. I had an Elizabeth Warren sign in my dorm room for a while. I'm currently interning for a congressional candidate. I'm very invested in politics. And supporting and liking certain politicians over others is a part of being invested in politics.
